Do an ebay search for TL* FRAME and look at the bottom of the eBay Stores list. Kool tubular TL racing frame from Germany for TL-R and TL-S.
Right. With the new frame, the bike's manufacturer changes (to "UNO" in my case). So you need to reregister the bike in order to get a new title. Since all todays tough emission regulations apply, it's pretty obvious, the TL motor is going to fail them....so once you transplanted your TL engine into this it would be considered a "new" bike and you couldn't reg it?
Well, yes. However, one has to keep in mind that the UNO frame was designed in 98/99. It was pretty cool then (it still is though). The intention was to build a frame that was better/stiffer/lighter than stock, while at the same time it would accept all other stock TL1000 parts (except for the rear suspension). Plus, the resulting bike had to be street legal (can be a pita issue here in Germany. All I say is TUV!!!)
I seemed to have screwed up for the frame here is the link for frames I was thinking of.Great source for exhaust bits!! I've been looking for all these parts in one place (with the services as well) for a long time. thanks!
By the way, do you have a specific source you can point me to for these?
